Terry Gilliam's Time Bandits, a wonderfully eccentric film, that's only real fault is in trying to cram too much in. It lacks breathing space, I always thought, and would - if ever considered - lend its self to a very nice multiple episode TV remake. If we can have Westworld again, we could have the Time Bandits!
based on info in the comments' section then I'll edit to 1976. Thank you
Do you see what I did there?
OK, time to clear the files a bit. I've been holding onto these images for years waiting to date them but lets throw it out to you people out there. If you know, or know how I can find out what year these images are from then feel free to pop a comment in below and I'll update accordingly.
Smirnoff Vodka (1967)
Its been suggested that this is the same space helmet as one featured in You Only Live Twice and on study I would have to agree. Its also the same year as that James Bond film and given the smart dressed chap and the girl I'm now wonder if this whole advert is trying to capture the Bond thing, officially or not. Thanks "Unknown" for spotting that
Twinkies TV advert (1970)
It looks OK but I've seen this movies so many times before, I'm not rushing. I'll wait for the DVD but if you can't then be sure to come back here and tell us all about it in the comments below.
Until then, Some more pictures of suits...
